15th String Processing and Information Retrieval Symposium
Melbourne Australia, November 10-12


The 2008 SPIRE symposium will be held in the Docklands precinct of the city of Melbourne, Australia. Melbourne is renowned for its great events, its passion for food and wine, and its fabulous arts scene; and all of these come together in the newly developed Docklands area. November is late springtime in Melbourne, and a great time to visit Australia more generally. For further information, see Visit Melbourne.

This year's conference will be held at the iconic Digital Harbour technology port, in the Digital Harbour Theatrette. The Theatrette is on the ground floor in the Innovation Building, located at 1010 Latrobe Street. A detailed map to the location is linked below.
